All kinds of animals, highlights were the Brown bears and getting up close to a sloth in the jungle room, food was good and plenty of amenities.... only negative is that it is a little pricey.

Had some time to spare whilst in Amersfoort so decided to visit this zoo to occupy my time. I have been to many zoo's in many countries and this one is up there with the best, my favourite being Sydney Zoo. The site is well laid out amongst a pine forest and the animal enclosures are spacious and in keeping with the animals natural environment. I saw no sign of bored animals, so common in some zoos. There is plenty to see and do and you need to allow at least half a day to cover everything here. Highly recommended for young and old alike.

We had a slack day workwise so rented bikes from our hotel, cycled to the zoo, which was a great way to get there. Admission was 19.50 Euro per adult which seems good. Inside the zoo is well laid out, set in lovely scenery. We went midweek so was quiet, plenty of places to get a drink and watch the wildlife go by. A new enclosure for birds was being constructed, but wasn't an issue. Only complaint was the elephant demonstration at 2pm was lots of talking and no elephants! Most of the crowd had left after 15 minutes of talk and no action. Worth a visit. Free WiFi is only accessible at the park entrance, it's not park wide.

Great experience to walk through the night life area where in a confined space, without a cage, you have the chance to see all kind of little apes and sloths very close-by.
Also great how they designed the Giraffe area, you can look them in the eye!

I love going to a zoo! Each one brings something different. Amersfoort brings the animals quite close to you cause they use glass walls instead of water or metal cages, which allows you to realize just how big a tiger, bear, etc. is. But if you really want to be amazed by size, check out their dino-park. Lifesized statues of dinosaurs, just impressive. Other than that, a lot of playgrounds for the kids and restaurants for the parents. Not as expensive as many others. Great for a family day of fun. And Amersfoort itself is a charming little town.
